from the stories i've heard, hera spends most of her time policing zeus's extramarital adventures, and consequently comes across as slightly shrewish (as if resentment of one's partner's adultery was a bad thing, even on olympus). athena seems much cooler, and she would be my choice, an advisor with benefits. aphrodite is all T&A.
